Got Mic Arm Tally Lights?

You’ll love this.

We love those beautiful M!KA microphone arms, especially the ones with the built-in tally lights. The Mic Tally Gadget controls those tally lights. The 5-pin XLR connectors carry the microphone audio and the signal voltage for the tally light. The microphone signals are passed through to your preamps via RJ45 connectors in the StudioHub+ format. If you’re using an Axia xNode or a Wheatstone blade, a shielded CAT-5 patch cable is all you need for the preamp connection.

The Mic Tally Gadget can control four mic arm tallies at once. Each position has its own logic connector so you can use your console logic to turn on the lights. Each tally can be red or white. Some engineers will use one color to signify on-air and another color for ready, talk signaling, or some other bright idea. Front panel switches can be used to manually control the tally lights.

Like all Angry Audio gadgets, the Mic Tally Gadget is built to last. The all-steel enclosure, premium curated components, onboard linear power supply and generous design margins all contribute to the rock-solid reliability you demand from broadcast products.

 

 

The mic arm tally light tells each guest when the mics are hot. This simple idea can make an audible difference to talk-oriented programs. And because the M!KA tallies are bicolor, you can use the alternate color for signaling. One color for on-air, the other color for “pipe down and put on the cans.” Ahem. Or perhaps something else.

Mount two gadgets side by side in only 1RU with the optional Rack Mount Kit. All the hardware is included, even a filler panel if you’re only mounting a single gadget. Of course, you’ll often look at that filler panel and daydream about replacing it with another cool gadget. Perfectly natural.
The optional Wall Mount Kit includes the brackets and hardware so you can attach a gadget to a flat surface. You might bolt your gadget to the inside of a cabinet, but really, any flat surface will do. Tech wall, flight case, ceiling. Okay the ceiling would be a bit weird, but hey, it’s your gadget.
Perhaps you want your gadget right in the middle of the action, on your desktop. Makes sense to us. The optional Desktop Mount Kit tilts the face of the gadget upward toward the eyes of the user. You can set it on a tabletop or use the included hardware to secure it permanently. Thieving varmints ain’t gonna get your gadget.

Maybe you want your gadget within reach, but just out of sight. Why not mount it under the desk or counter with the optional Under Counter Mount Kit. Some of our customers like their gadgets there. We like to think of this as the “bank manager’s silent alarm switch” position. Mind your knees, son.
